My Name is My Own

My Name is My OwnT0955852461
Confront issues of power, rights and public political speech at a performance by black and brown women and non-binary people. Responding to June Jordan's 1983 ?Poem About My Rights', this visceral physical performance is conceived by choreographer Temitope Ajose-Cutting and director Jo Tyabji, and features new work from poet Jay Bernard and a score by composer and sound designer Mwen. In her poem, Jordan wrote ?And what in hell is everybody being so reasonable about?' This specially created ensemble takes forward the work of rearticulating this question for our time and place, continuing the line Jordan drew into our present day. A new commission for the performance by Forward Prize nominee Bernard surfaces the radical Atlanticism of queer feminists of colour, looking from ourselves for connections outwards, as Jordan looked from the US. My Name Is My Own takes what we already know but almost never say out loud and dares to give it shape and voice.
